After expanding beyond its Android roots last year, Any.DO may have managed to become even more popular thanks to adoption from iOS users. But even with the kind praise from suitors, the handy app isn’t resting on its laurels: earlier today the Android and iOS versions received an update which features a redesigned look and an all-new logo.

From the 1.3 M Android activations, 70k are just tablets, something that Schmidt acknowledged Google was late to embrace.
The sound of the original theremin frightened audiences of spooky and science fictiony movies in the ’50s and ’60s, and while this digital replication is perhaps a little less chilling it’s also a lot less physical. It’s the so-called Therenect from Martin Kaltenbrunner, created using the Open Frameworks and OpenKinect libraries.
